Description Ville Skyttä 2005-07-01 17:41:10 UTC
It doesn't seem to be possible have spectool pass --target to rpmbuild, 
therefore making it impossible to fetch stuff let's say on a i386 with a 
specfile that states "ExclusiveArch: i586 i686". 
Could you fix this in the "upstream" spectool distribution?  Then, I'd just 
import it to rpmdevtools. 
On a further note, it would be cool if spectool could be a bit more verbose 
about encountered errors... for example in the above case, nothing happens.  
Using the -D option I can get the stderr filename and go look up what's wrong, 
but ideally I'd like to see the error right there on the console if things

Here's one approach that appears to work for me.  Thoughts?

Comment 2 Nils Philippsen 2005-12-28 15:42:17 UTC
I've applied this patch and released spectool-1.0.5.

Included in 1.4-1, thanks.

Comment 4 Ville Skyttä 2006-02-09 19:28:39 UTC
Hmm, BuildArch needs treatment too.  Fix below; Nils, could you roll a new
spectool again for this?

I've applied a  slightly modified -- I don't think there is a BuildOS: tag ;-)
-- fix in spectool-1.0.7. 

Comment 6 Ville Skyttä 2006-02-24 16:45:59 UTC
Right, thanks.
